    TORONTO — Aaron Judge stood in the middle of the narrow visitors clubhouse at the Rogers Centre Tuesday night covered in champagne and beer. The slugger had a real big smile on his face and looked as relaxed as he had been in weeks. There was finally something to celebrate. No, Judge did not make history with a historic home run, but he did walk four times and score twice as the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 5-2 and clinched the 2022 American League East title. “The reason why I came here, the reason I am playing with the Yankees is to try and help us win games,” the Yankees’ de facto captain said. “Anything I can do, hit a homer, taking a walk in a big situation and letting [Anthony] Rizzo drive me in, I am going to do that.” The No. 2 seed also comes with a first-round bye under the new MLB playoff structure. The Blue Jays (87-68) are still playing to clinch an AL Wild Card berth. “We can say we’re the best team in the...
    The Toronto Blue Jays slowed the success of the Baltimore Orioles, but Orioles reliever Bryan Baker answered back with infuriating trash talk — and a win. The Baltimore Orioles have long maintained their reputation as one of the worst teams in the AL East, but in 2022, they’re climbing the standings one game at a time. The Orioles currently rank fourth in a tight AL East race, but the difference between Baltimore and the top-ranked New York Yankees is only nine games. It remains entirely possible that the Orioles could contend for a playoff spot, but their current series against the Toronto Blue Jays is certainly making it more difficult. During the series, the Blue Jays have pulled ahead with an additional two wins, giving Toronto a 75-60 record to Baltimore’s 72-64 record. Even though the Orioles battled back with a 9-6 win on Tuesday night, Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette certainly didn’t make it easy for them on Monday night. Bichette became the first shortstop in AL history with 6+ hits and 3+ home runs in a single day,...
    Minnesota Twins manager Rocco Baldelli erupted at baseball officials Sunday after a call on the field was overturned during a review, which resulted in a 3-2 victory for the Toronto Blue Jays. The controversial call occurred during the 10th inning of the game between the Twins and Blue Jays, who are both competing for a slot in the playoffs. Toronto's Cavan Biggio hit a pop-fly that sent Whit Merrifield running to home plate. Merrifield had initially been called out when he hit home plate, but a challenge and closer review determined Twins catcher Gary Sanchez had completely blocked the plate, which was against the rules. Minnesota Twins manager Rocco Baldelli, right, argues with umpires Marty Foster, left, and Alan Porter after a review reversed a call that originally had Toronto Blue Jays' Whit Merrifield out at home in the 10th inning of a baseball game Sunday, Aug. 7, 2022, in Minneapolis. The Blue Jays won 3-2 in 10 innings. Bruce Kluckhohn/AP WATCH: MLB STAR HITS THREE HOME RUNS, INCLUDING A GRAND SLAM IN FIRST THREE...
    The Toronto Blue Jays improved their bullpen by acquiring Anthony Bass from the Miami Marlins, but it came at a premium price. The Toronto Blue Jays watched as the New York Yankees got better on paper when they acquired outfielder Andrew Benintendi, starting pitcher Frankie Montas, and relievers Zach Effross and Lou Trivino. With the deadline approaching at 6:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Aug. 2, the Blue Jays made a move to bolster their bullpen. According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the Blue Jays have acquired relievers Anthony Bass and Zach Pop from the Miami Marlins. In exchange, Toronto is sending their fourth-overall prospect, shortstop Jordan Groshans, to Miami. Additionally, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports that “a smaller piece” is heading to Toronto along with Bass and Pop. The main player going back to Toronto, per source: right-handed reliever Anthony Bass, whos been dominant this season. The Blue Jays have been looking for help, and in Bass, theyre getting a late-inning complement to Yimi Garcia, Adam Cimber and closer Jordan Romano. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) August 2, 2022...
    TORONTO (AP) — Unvaccinated left-hander Andrew Chafin was put on the restricted list by the Detroit Tigers before the opener of a four-game series in Toronto on Thursday. Foreign nationals who aren’t vaccinated against COVID-19 are not allowed to enter Canada, save for limited exceptions that require a 14-day quarantine. Unvaccinated baseball players are placed on the restricted list, where they are not paid and do not accrue major league service time. Chafin signed a $13 million, two-year contract in March. He will lose $142,857 from his $6.5 million salary this season. Detroit selected the contract of right-hander Bryan Garcia from Triple-A Toledo as a substitute player and added right-hander Derek Law and shortstop Zack Short to its taxi squad. Chafin had a career-high five saves and 64 strikeouts in 71 games in 2021, splitting the season between the Chicago Cubs and Oakland. His 1.83 ERA ranked fifth among major league relievers. Garcia is 5-3 with a 6.12 ERA in 72 relief appearances over the past three seasons. He’s scheduled to make his first career start Friday against Blue Jays...

(Photo by Mark Brown/Getty Images) The Toronto Blue Jays have fired Charlie Motoyo and these three should be consider long-term candidates to replace him. The Toronto Blue Jays are very much alive in the postseason race but some recent struggles were apparently enough for the team to move on from manager Charlie Montoyo. He was fired on Wednesday July 13 with a lifetime managerial record of 190-194 with the ball club dating back to 2019 when he first took over the gig. Firing a manager midseason can sometimes spark a team into succeeding. The Philadelphia Phillies fired Joe Girardi earlier this year and under Rob Thomson they took off. The exact opposite happened when the Los Angeles got rid of Joe Maddon in the midst of their losing streak. They continued to lose under Phil...
    TORONTO (AP) — Kevin Gausman matched a season high with 10 strikeouts over seven innings, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit one of three Toronto home runs and the Blue Jays halted Boston’s seven-game winning streak, beating the Red Sox 7-2 Monday night. Guerrero hit a two-run home run, his 18th of the season, Matt Chapman also hit a two-run blast and George Springer added a solo shot as Toronto improved to 6-2 against Boston. Gausman (6-6) snapped a four-start losing streak, winning for the first time since May 31 against the White Sox.. Three of the four hits Gausman allowed were singles. Boston’s only runs came off newly promoted right-hander Shaun Anderson in the ninth, when Trevor Story hit a sacrifice fly and Bobby Dalbec added an RBI single that struck Anderson on the foot. The Red Sox, who came in 7-14 against AL East opponents, lost the opener of a stretch in which they face Toronto, Tampa Bay and the Yankees 20 times in 23 games. Only five of Boston’s previous 50 games had been against division foes, all of...
    TORONTO — After getting beat here the last two games, the Blue Jays simply out-bombed the Bombers Sunday. Toronto hammered four homers off the Yankees, rallied from a five-run deficit and pulled off a 10-9 win at the Rogers Centre. It snapped a nine-game winning streak for the Yankees (49-17) and the first time their pitchers had allowed 10 runs this season. They were the last team in the majors to give up 10 runs in a game. The four home runs they allowed was just one shy of the season-high of five allowed by Gerrit Cole in Minnesota. The Blue Jays (38-28) cut the Yankees’ lead in the American League East to 11 games with the win. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit a grand slam off Miguel Castro in the sixth and Teoscar Hernandez hit a three-run shot off Wandy Peralta in the seventh to give the Blue Jays their first lead since the first inning of the game. Anthony Rizzo, pinch hitting in the eighth, hit his third home run in the last four games to cut it to...
    TORONTO — Last weekend, Aaron Boone joked about how he is able to put Matt Carpenter on a shelf and then take him “out for a spin” once a week. The veteran infielder has proven to be an invaluable bench player for the Yankees so far this season. His ability to stay sharp and effective in limited and sporadic playing time has been impressive. “When he got to us, after being home for several days, and right away coming in and having impactful at-bats. And then sitting over there again and getting a start and having impactful at-bats regardless of results which have obviously been great,” Boone said. “I mean, it’s just you look at what the quality of the at-bats has been there and he’s in a really good place. I think he’s come in here and immediately fit in with the group and really enjoys being here and has kept himself ready and prepared. Being around as much as he has some of the things he’s worked on in the winter. He just knows how to be ready to go.”...
    TORONTO (AP) — Kyle Garlick and José Miranda each hit two home runs, Byron Buxton also went deep and the Minnesota Twins beat the Blue Jays 9-3 Friday night, snapping Toronto’s winning streak at eight. Jharel Cotton (1-1) and four fellow relievers combined for six no-hit innings after taking over for Chi Chi González as the Twins ended a three-game slump. Minnesota had lost seven of its previous 10. George Springer and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. both hit solo homers but the Blue Jays lost for the fourth time in 16 games. Garlick hit a two-run homer in the first inning and added a solo drive in the third, both off Yusei Kikuchi (2-2). Garlick has six home runs this season and two career multi-homer games. Miranda hit a solo homer off Kikuchi in the second and had a two-run drive off Trevor Richards in the sixth. Miranda has four homers this year after the first multi-homer game of his career. Buxton hit a two-run homer off Jeremy Beasley in the ninth, his 12th. Down 2-0 after Garlick’s first homer,...
    José Abreu led off the seventh inning with a single Thursday, extending his hitting streak to 11 games. More importantly for the Chicago White Sox, the hit snapped a stretch of 16 straight batters retired by Toronto Blue Jays starter Alex Manoah. The right-hander was on cruise control for most of the afternoon at Rogers Centre. The Sox rallied with three runs in the eighth, only to give up four in the bottom of the inning in an 8-3 loss. That completed a three-game sweep for the Blue Jays, who won their eighth straight game. The Sox, meanwhile, have lost six of eight to drop to 23-26 — and into third place in the American League Central. Starter Johnny Cueto kept the Sox in the game, allowing three earned runs in six innings. He left with a 4-0 deficit. The three-run eighth was a good sign, with Luis Robert hitting a two-run double against Manoah and Yoán Moncada picking up an RBI single against reliever Adam Cimber. The momentum was short-lived, however, as the Blue Jays answered with the big...

    The Yankees were not happy with Blue Jays starter Yimi Garcia for plunking Josh Donaldson. Yet, it could be Donaldson’s feud with Toronto catcher Tyler Heineman that started it all. Donaldson did admit he had ‘words’ with Tyler Heineman before the at-bat, leading the Yankees to wonder if that had anything to do with the Garcia hit by pitch. New York took the plunking as a warning, while the Jays were surprised at that reaction, as well as the umps’ decision to throw out Garcia. “I didn’t even know the guy. I didn’t even know that was his name. Never heard of him,” Donaldson said. Josh Donaldson is hit immediately following Stanton’s HR, causing Yimi Garcia to be ejected from the game. Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker was also ejected following an argument with the umpires.

Then, things got out of control in the sixth, as the Yankees got their first hits of the game and ended up tying the game 3-3 on a three-run homer by Giancarlo Stanton.

    TORONTO — The Force was not with them. The Yankees bats went quiet Wednesday night and the Blue Jays shut down the longest winning streak in baseball this season at 11 straight games, delivering the Bombers a 2-1 loss at the Rogers Centre on Star Wars night. It was the Bombers’ first loss in 12 games, dating back to April 21, ending the longest active winning streak in baseball this season and finishing just short of the Yankees 13-game winning streak last August.

    New York Yankees Recap: Yankees lose a squeaker in the eighth at Rogers’ Center William Parlee September 29, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit After an incredible run of winning seven games in a row, the New York Yankees hoped to win another one tonight, taking the series from the Blue Jays. The Yankees swept the Red Sox and, with the win last night, retook the number one berth in the wild card race, gaining home-field advantage and putting the Red Sox two games behind, but the Yankees couldn’t get complacent as the Blue Jays, and Seattle Mariners were nipping at their heels. With five games to go in the regular season, the Yankees sent their ace Gerrit Cole to the mound at Roger’s Center in Toronto to face the Jays Jose Berrios. At the end of the night, with a homer by Bo Bichette in the eighth, the Blue Jays edged the Yankees 6-5. The game started with DJ LeMahieu at the plate and Jose...
    New York Yankees: Yankees start a crucial three games at Toronto, here’s the preview William Parlee September 28, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Yankees start a three-game series tonight in Toronto, Canada, against the Toronto Blue Jays. It may be the most critical series of the season because the outcome could decide the whole season for the boys from the Bronx. Right now, the Yankees hold onto the number one wild card berth that gives the home-field advantage in the one win or go home game. The Yankees can’t control what happens to other teams, but they can control their own destiny. Presently the Red Sox are just one game back from the Yankees. The Yankees, to maintain that home-field advantage, must win two of three of these games because the Blue Jays are just one game behind the Red Sox. I stated that there are things they can not control; one of those is that the Red Sox play their next...

    With the MLB trade deadline right around the corner, the Brewers have made a strong move that will surely help out the rest of the way.  Things really feel like they’re going to be special for the Milwaukee Brewers this year.

Of course, that conversely helps their pitchers like Robbie Ray (who was dominant in Tuesday’s win), Steven Matz and budding superstar Alek Manoah. Injuries continue to hit While Jack Flaherty landed on the IL with an oblique injury, Fernando Tatis Jr. left Tuesday's game against the Cubs with an oblique injury. Stephen Strasburg also departed after his velocity was noticeably down. Tatis has somehow been the No. 1 fantasy...
    Monday’s game at the Oakland Coliseum will look a little different for Tracy White. Mom to Marcus Semien, she’d grown accustomed to wearing her green and gold Semien shirt in the family section at the old ballpark. For the Oakland A’s four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays this week, White will be donning her brand new Toronto-blue and white shirt with “Semien” emblazoned on the back. “Can I even wear this shirt?” White said. “Doesn’t feel right not to wear an A’s shirt, but I have to.” This year has been full of changes for the Semien family. White and her husband, Elgin, and Semien’s grandparents and sister, among other family and friends, will be at the Coliseum for the first time since 2019. Semien, this time, will take second base instead of shortstop. And he’ll be on the visiting Blue Jays team, not the home team. Post-game bonding time will be a little different, too. White would see Semien and his family at least once a week. Now that Semien is with the Blue...
    BOSTON (AP) — Looking to spark a scuffling offense, Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo shook up his lineup Wednesday night and the Blue Jays responded immediately in a 6-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox. After the start was delayed 31 minutes by rain, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit an RBI single in the first inning and the Blue Jays scored three more runs in the second against Garrett Richards (0-2).

Trent Thornton made his first start of the season and went two innings in a bullpen game for the Blue Jays. Six relievers followed and held down Boston’s potent offense. Ryan Borucki (2-1) tossed two scoreless innings for the win. Xander Bogaerts hit a solo homer in the eighth, cutting the Red Sox deficit to one, but Toronto added two insurance runs...

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports The Texas Rangers hosted the Toronto Blue Jays Monday with nearly 40,000 fans in attendance. Texas Gov.

Nearly 48,000 people have died from COVID-19 in the state of Texas since last year.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Photos from the Texas Rangers' opening game against the Toronto Blue Jays look almost otherworldly.

    On Opening Day, several Yankees fans allegedly aimed racist chants at Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez, who is from the Dominican Republic. An Opening Day pitching matchup between Gerrit Cole and the AL East favorite New York Yankees and Hyun-Jin Ryu and the upstart Toronto Blue Jays briefly took a backseat to some despicable behavior from a number of so-called Yankees fans in the Bronx. As great as it is having fans back in stadiums across baseball, with it comes questionable behavior. In this case, should the events prove accurate, all involved will likely receive a ban from Yankee Stadium if identified. According to Zack Hample, a few Yankee fans aimed racist taunts at Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez. The ‘Bleacher Creatures’ in right field at Yankee Stadium are among the most notable fan groups in all of baseball, and lumping them all in with this group is unfair. Still, professional athletes deserve far better from those who come to watch them play.Teoscar Hernandez is from the Dominican Republic, and coming off a breakout season for TorontoHernandez serves...

    DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays will play their third homestand of the season at their spring training ballpark in Dunedin, Fliorida, because of COVID-19 restrictions. Toronto announced Feb. 18 that its first two homestands will be at TD Ballpark and on Tuesday added 10 games from May 14-24 against Philadelphia, Boston and Tampa Bay.

    By ROB GILLIES, Associated Press TORONTO (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays will play their first two homestands of the season at their spring training facility in Dunedin, Florida, because of Canadian government restrictions during the pandemic. The team said Thursday it has been planning different scenarios for home games and had hoped to see improvements in public health. The Blue Jays cited the “ongoing Canada-U.S. border closure” in making the “difficult decision." The team added in its statment that it ”hopes of a return to play at Rogers Centre as soon as possible.” After starting the season with three-game series at the New York Yankees and Texas Rangers, Toronto’s schedule has a homestand with four games against the Los Angeles Angels from April 8-11 and the Yankees from April 12-14. The Blue Jays follow with a trip to Kansas City, Boston and Tampa Bay, then have home games against Washington on April 27-28 and Atlanta from April 30 to May 2. That is followed by a 10-game trip to Oakland, Houston and Atlanta. It remains unlikely they would gain...

    With so much potential change coming for the St. Louis Cardinals, the team could have a totally different feel next season. Come 2021, St. Louis Cardinals fans everywhere need to start preparing themselves for some major changes for the team they know and love. That’s because some veterans appear to be on their way out of town. Earlier this offseason, fans were disappointed to find out future Hall-of-Famer Yadier Molina has been receiving plenty of interest from other clubs, including the New York Mets and New York Yankees. He’s not the only stud who could be leaving, as Adam Wainwright and Kolten Wong are also free agents. It’s looking more and more likely that all three could be rocking new jerseys this spring.
